    The Abominable Dr. Phibes

    ★★★

    Watched it because it gets referenced in The Big Sick & I had a copy lying around. The movie is ambitious, weird, & has amazing set & costume design. There are some cool-looking shots & Vincent Price goes the entire movie without saying a word, relying on his amazing acting skills. Want to see a goofier version of Saw as interpreted through the disco/Art Deco aesthetic? Watch this movie!

  • The Big Sick

    The Big Sick

    ★★★½

    So first off, let me say that my rating is tempered by the fact that I don't like rom-coms. That said, this is clearly a passion project for Kumail & Emily & it's great to support people who are excited about their work. There's some weird story structure flaws & there could have been more w. K's family but everyone is giving 110 percent. This one is nice to watch with your sweetheart.

    ★★★½

    It was a little odd to be watching this for the first time so many years after its popularity. But many of the shots were well-composed & Benigni keeps up a consistent energy. A film that does remind me I haven't watched a lot of Italian cinema & should change that.

    My first John Hughes movie at 36. Hey, let's go thrifting!
